WARDS believes that every child is special. WARDS is an organization for non-profit, providing support to individuals suffering from autism, cerebral palsy, multiple disabilities and mental retardation, identified from various slums in Bangalore. In its endeavor to bridge the gap between these children and others in the same age group, WARDS has come a long way helping these children cast aside their weaknesses and fight their way through life, without a trace of inhibition.
WARDS has been started with a vision to promote understanding, acceptance, and full community inclusion for people with these challenges. While the challenges these kids experience last for a life, much can be done to help them enjoy life and participate in the society. The symptoms of these disabilities are treatable–there are many interventions that can make a significant difference. With the help from agencies and individuals, WARDS has the potential to translate their vision to reach a larger section of the disabled population in the society and can make a difference for these individuals who face heart-breaking challenges every moment of their lives.
